The Apartment


Back in 1960 Billy Wilder's high-profile rom-com was derided for its dark undertones, and for perhaps blabbing a little too much about the secrets of corporate America. Jack Lemmon is at his peak as the typically jittery company guy who tries to boost his promotion potential by hiring his apartment out to superiors and their mistresses. Things get uncomfortable when he falls for his boss' side-dish Fran (Shirley MacLaine). It's heavily dated - - check out the sexual politics - - but still a lesson in how to blend a little shade into light comedy.
